How to make peanut butter pie:

In a saucepan, combine 2/3 cup sugar, 1/3 cup cornstarch, egg yolks and milk; cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from the heat. Add butter and vanilla, stirring until the butter melts. Pour into pie shell.

In a small saucepan, combine remaining sugar and cornstarch with water; cook over low heat until thickened. Cool slightly. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold in cornstarch mixture. Spread meringue over the hot filling, sealing to the edges. Sprinkle reserved peanut butter mixture over top. Bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
